Learn (or Teach) French in less than 15 minutes!
Written by Middle-school students for students, 2Lingua Kids allows you to learn (or teach) basic French expressions through a fun and interesting bilingual story. No grammar. No vocabulary list. This 15-minute script (English with French expressions) takes you through history. Follow the adventures of the descendants of various historical figures and learn along the way.
INTUITIVE AND POWERFUL
Written specifically for English-speakers, this casual dialogue is meant to reinforce common expressions by recreating the natural flow between English and French, the same way that bilingual people manipulate language.
This app will allow you to:
• place language in context
• hear French at its normal speed
• listen to French phrases at a slower pace
• learn more about culture and history through the info box
• explore the story visually through the photo album.
If learning a language is or ever has been challenging, then this app is for you!
_Tap the sound icon to listen to the whole story. This step allows you to hear the language at its normal pace, and to establish a context for French phrases.
_Tap the French sentences to hear them at a slow speed. Repeat them if you wish for faster acquisition.
_Tap the info icon to learn more about history and culture.
_Swipe the pictures to get a virtual experience of the story.
_Refer to the glossary to find a particular French expression.
All text and audio content is contained within the app. No internet connection required.
What an amazing and fun project! For middle schoolers this app looks very professional! Great pics! What a sweet deal; you learn a great deal of history, culture with the dialogues. It's a wonderful way to acquire new vocabulary and expressions, in context. Having the French words and expressions recorded at different speeds (in the dialogue and in isolation) helps the learner practice pronunciation and fluency at his/her own pace. The glossary is vey helpful as well; it takes you straight to the right page, you don't have to waste time looking for the page where a particular phrase is. The bloopers were the icing to the cake; they were fun. Fantastic job, guys!
Fantastic App and Easy Learning
This app is put together very well. The GUI/Interface looks very clean and professional. The color scheme is also very appealing. However the most important part of this app; teaching you French is very helpful. Instead of classic language learning, this app gives auditory and visual clues along with an attractive storyline to help keep you interested. Overall this app makes commonly used French phrases a breeze to learn especially for a free app.
Love the app. The historical information referenced in the conversations is very interesting. The conversations are well written and equally well performed. The photos are definitely a nice touch. It's hard to believe 8th graders created, wrote, and produced this app.
